This dramatic and spacious duplex Penthouse residence, set in a 22' wide limestone townhouse formerly owned by the legendary Astor family, is a true jewel of New Yorks Gilded Age.
A careful architectural renovation has preserved the building's nineteenth century grandeur while blending in state-of-the-art modern details. The private keyed elevator opens directly into this sprawling 2,092 SF, 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom penthouse duplex. This spectacular residence is enhanced by nearly 10 ft ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, three private terraces and a decorative fireplace. Magnificent natural sunlight pours in from the oversized windows in the grand living room with a private terrace that overlooks the opulent Beaux Arts mansion. Marble floors line the hallway and the luxurious bathrooms, while the custom solid wood kitchen is equipped with Sub-Zero, Wolf and Miele appliances.
On the upper level, a private, grand ensuite master bedroom with an oversized master bathroom and private terrace completes this wonderful home. Additional amenities include full-time concierge, multi-zoned Mitsubishi split-air system, and washer/dryer in unit.
Located half a block from Fifth Avenue and Central Park, and is conveniently located from legendary New York locations like Barney's, Bergdorf Goodman, the Plaza, and Madison Avenue boutiques. Many of Manhattan's finest restaurants are just around the corner, and Midtown's office buildings are moments away. Should you need to go further afield, the N/Q/R, 4/5/6 and F trains are all just a few blocks from the apartment, providing rapid transportation anywhere in New York City.
